An on-site, After-School Care Program (ASCP) is offered to families with children in grades K-8. The hours of program operation are 3:00-5:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, on every full day of school. There is no after-school care on half-days, holidays, or when school is canceled or dismissed early due to inclement weather.
ASCP Mission: To provide a safe, enjoyable program of on-site, after-school care which will be a fun, wholesome break from the school-day routine while also supporting the structure of the Westminster program.
At the end of each academic day, their homeroom teachers escort/direct the students to the ASCP headquarters, where they are welcomed by the ASCP staff. The same general schedule is followed each afternoon:
3:00 - 3:45 - homework/individual work
3:45 - 4:15 - free play (outdoor/indoor)
4:15 - 4:30 - snack with drink
4:30 - 5:45 - arts & crafts; board games; activities
Students may be collected by the parent/guardian (or other persons designated on the registration form) at any time during the After-School Care Program. The sign-out log maintained by the ASCP staff must be signed each day before the child will be released. Students are to be picked up by 5:45 p.m. each day.*
After-school care is available only to students who are registered for the program. No “drop-ins” are accepted. The cost of the program is $4,000.00 per student/per year, September-June, payable in quarterly increments of $1,000.00. Families who choose to pay the yearly fee in lump sum (due April 30) receive a discount of $100. Sibling discounts are offered for the second student from the same family, deduct 10%; for the third student, 15%; for the fourth, 20%.
Enrollment in the After-School Care Program is on a first-come, first-served basis, and may be limited due to space and staffing constraints. A registration form for After-School Care is enclosed. Additional forms are available in the school office.
* A late fee is charged for pick-ups later than 6:00 p.m.
